Oak Leaf by Liz Porter
This month's Past Perfect quiltmaker is Liz Porter, who has spent her career interpreting vintage quilt design for new fabrics and techniques.
They published a successful book Classic Quilted Vests in 1982, started a magazine, bought the magazine, sold the magazine and branched out into other media.
My favorite quilts of Liz's are the simple patterns, done in traditional color schemes.
I guess I am just old-fashioned and so is she.
Martha Washington Star
Certainly with books, television shows and magazine, Liz has inspired many quilters to look to the past.
Match A Patch Star
Wheel of Chance
She retired a few years ago and moved to Texas.
Liz has made retirement quite a success too. She says she plays golf and spends time with four grandchildren and still quilts (as a hobby.) She and Marianne are going to be honored in the Quilters' Hall of Fame next summer.
Emily's Wedding Quilt
Since it's her hobby I have no photos of Liz's recent work but I bet they look much like these traditional quilts.
